DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION Synthesis

The compounds of Formulae (I) and (II) can be prepared by one of the methods described below in Equations 1 and 2.

As shown in Equation 1, compounds of Formula I can be prepared by reaction of the sulfonamide of Formula (III) with an appropriate methyl heterocyclic carbamate of Formula (IV) in the presence of an equimolar amount of trimethylaluminum, wherein R1, R2, R7, W1, W and A are as previously defined. ##STR13##

The reaction of Equation 1 takes place in methylene chloride at reflux or ambient temperature for 16-96 hours under an inert atmosphere. The product can be isolated after the sequential addition of aqueous acetic acid and hydrochloric acid to the reaction mixture followed by the partitioning of the product into methylene chloride. The product can be purified via crystallization from such solvents as n-butyl chloride, diethyl ether, tetrahydrofuran, or methylene chloride or by silica medium pressure liquid chromatography.

As shown in Equation 2, compounds of Formula (II) can be prepared by reaction of the sulfonamide of Formula (V) with an appropriate methyl heterocyclic carbamate of Formula (IV) in the presence of an equimolar amount of trimethylaluminum, wherein R3 to R7, W1, W and A are as previously defined. ##STR14##

The reaction of Equation 2 is performed in methylene chloride at reflux for 16-72 hours under an inert atmosphere. The product is isolated upon sequential addition of aqueous acetic acid and hydrochloric acid to the reaction mixture followed by the partitioning of the product into methylene chloride. The product is purified via crystallization from solvents such as n-butyl chloride, diethyl ether or methylene chloride or by silica medium pressure liquid chromatography.

As shown in Equation 3, the sulfonamides of Formula (III) wherein R1 and R2 are not H and W1 and W are as previously defined can be prepared from the appropriate 1,3-benzodioxole of Formula (VI) via the lithium sulfinate of Formula (VII). ##STR15##

Furo[2,3-d]pyrimidine Intermediates

The pyrimidine intermediates XIV in which Z is hydrogen or methyl and X is methyl have been reported in the literature by E. Bisagni et al., [Bul. Soc. Chim. Fr., 803 (1969)]. An apparently more efficient procedure is depicted in Equation 10 for the case in which Z is hydrogen. ##STR38##

The keto-ester precursors XV are prepared by well known literature methods, e.g., J. F. Tinker and T. E. Whatmough, J. Amer. Chem. Soc., 74, 5235 (1952).

Treatment of XIV with an excess of guanidine carbonate in an organic solvent, preferably a polar aprotic solvent such as dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), dimethylformamide (DMF), or N,N-dimethylacetamide, at a temperature of 80 to 200, preferably 100 to 160, ambient pressure and preferably under an inert atmosphere, yields both XIVa and XVI as products. The products are isolated upon dilution of the reaction mixture with, for example, acetone and water successively. Higher reaction temperatures and longer reaction times (e.g., in DMSO at 130-150 for 2 to 8 hours) favor the production of the furopyrimidine XIV over the uncyclized pyrimidine XVI.

Agriculturally suitable salts of compounds of Formulae (I) and (II) are also useful herbicides and can be prepared in a number of ways known to the art. For example, metal salts can be made by contacting compounds of Formulae (I) and (II) with a solution of an alkali or alkaline earth metal salt having a sufficiently basic anion (e.g. hydroxide, alkoxide, carbonate or hydroxide). Quaternary amine salts can be made by similar techniques.

Salts of compounds of Formula (I) or (II) can also be prepared by exchange of one cation to another. Cationic exchange can be effected by direct treatment of an aqueous solution of a salt of a compound of Formula (I) or (II) (e.g., alkali metal or quaternary amine salt) with a solution containing the cation to be exchanged. This method is most effective when the desired salt containing the exchanged cation is insoluble in water, e.g., a copper salt, and can be separated by filtration.

Exchange may also be effected by passing an aqueous solution of a salt of a compound of Formula (I) or (II) (e.g., an alkali metal or quaternary amine salt) through a column packed with a cation exchange resin containing the cation to be exchanged. In this method, the cation of the resin is exchanged for that of the original salt and the desired product is eluted from the column. This method is particularly useful when the desired salt is water-soluble, e.g., a potassium, sodium or calcium salt.

Acid addition salts, useful in this invention, can be obtained by reacting a compound of Formula (I) or (II) with a suitable acid, e.g., p-toluenesulfonic acid, trichloroacetic acid or the like.

The compounds of this invention and their preparation are further illustrated by the following examples wherein temperatures are given in degrees centigrade and all parts are by weight unless otherwise indicated.

Chem., 1967, 4, 166] in 300 ml ether and 200 ml tetrahydrofuran at ambient temperature under nitrogen was added dropwise, 105 ml n-butyllithium (1.6N in hexane). The temperature was maintained at ≈25 C. with ice bath cooling during this addition. The reaction mixture was stirred 16 hours at room temperature. Excess sulfur dioxide was bubbled through the reaction mixture, kept at ≈25 C. with cooling, until no further exotherm was noted. The reaction mixture was stirred at room temperature for 18 hours followed by the addition of 10 ml isopropyl alcohol. The reaction mixture was concentrated and crystallized from ether/tetrahydrofuran to give 20.5 g tan solid. The solid was added to 150 ml acetic acid and the resultant mixture was cooled to 20 C. A slurry of 12.4 g N-chlorosuccinimide in 75 ml acetic acid was added portionwise with cooling to maintain the reaction mixture between 20 and 25 C. The reaction mixture was stirred for three hours at ambient temperature and the solvent was removed under reduced pressure to give an oil. The oil was dissolved in methylene chloride and washed with water. The aqueous phase was washed with methylene chloride. The organic phases were combined, dried and the solvent removed under reduced pressure to give an oil which was dissolved in 250 ml ether and cooled to 10 C. Excess ammonia (anhy.) was bubbled through the reaction mixture using ice bath cooling. The reaction mixture was warmed to ambient temperature, stirred for 1 hour, and 150 ml ether was added.

FORMULATIONS

Useful formulations of the compounds of Formulae I and II can be prepared in conventional ways. They include dusts, granules, pellets, solutions, suspensions, emulsions, wettable powders, emulsifiable concentrates and the like. Many of these may be applied directly. Sprayable formulations can be extended in suitable media and used at spray volumes of from a few liters to several hundred liters per hectare. High strength compositions are primarily used as intermediates for further formulation. The formulations, broadly, contain about 0.1% to 99% by weight of active ingredient(s) and at least one of (a) about 0.1% to 20% surfactant(s) and (b) about 1% to 99.9% solid or liquid inert diluent(s). More specifically, they will contain these ingredients in the following approximate proportions:

Lower or higher levels of active ingredient can, of course, be present depending on the intended use and the physical properties of the compound. Higher ratios of surfactant to active ingredient are sometimes desirable, and are achieved by incorporation into the formulation or by tank mixing.

Typical solid diluents are described in Watkins, et al., "Handbook of Insecticide Dust Diluents and Carriers", 2nd Ed., Dorland Books, Caldwell, N.J., but other solids, either mined or manufactured, may be used. The more absorptive diluents are preferred for wettable powders and the denser ones for dusts. Typical liquid diluents and solvents are described in Marsden, "Solvents Guide," 2nd Ed., Interscience, N.Y., 1950. Solubility under 0.1% is preferred for suspension concentrates; solution concentrates are preferably stable against phase separation at 0 C., "McCutcheon's Detergents and Emulsifiers Annual", MC Publishing Corp., Ridgewood, N.J., as well as Sisely and Wood, "Encyclopedia of Surface Active Agents", Chemical Publishing Co., Inc., New York, 1964, list surfactants and recommended uses. All formulations can contain minor amounts of additives to reduce foaming, caking, corrosion, microbiological growth, etc.

The methods of making such compositions are well known. Solutions are prepared by simply mixing the ingredients. Fine solid compositions are made by blending and, usually, grinding as in a hammer or fluid energy mill. Suspensions are prepared by wet milling (see, for example, Littler, U.S. Pat. No. 3,060,084). Granules and pellets may be made by spraying the active material upon preformed granular carriers or by agglomeration techniques. See J. E. Browning, "Agglomeration", Chemical Engineering, Dec. 4, 1967, pp. 147ff and "Perry's Chemical Engineer's Handbook", 5th Ed., McGraw-Hill, New York, 1973, pp. 8-57ff.

UTILITY

The compounds of the present invention are powerful herbicides. They have utility for broadspectrum pre- and/or post-emergence weed control in areas where complete control of all vegetation is desired, such as around fuel storage tank, ammunition depots, industrial storage areas, parking lots, drive-in theaters, around billboards, highway and railroad structures. Alternatively, the subject compounds are useful for selective pre- or post-emergence weed control in crops, such as wheat, barley and rice.

The rates of application for the compounds of the invention are determined by a number of factors, including their use as selective or general herbicides, the crop species involved, the types of weeds to be controlled, weather and climate, formulations selected, mode of application, amount of foliage present, etc. In general terms, the subject compounds should be applied at levels of around 0.125 to 10 kg/ha, the lower rates being suggested for use on lighter soils and/or those having a low organic matter content, for selective weed control or for situations where only short-term persistence is required.

The compounds of the invention may be used in combination with any other commercial herbicide examples of which are those of the triazine, triazole, uracil, urea, amide, diphenylether, carbamate and bipyridylium types.

The herbicidal properties of the subject compounds were discovered in a number of greenhouse tests. The test procedures and results follow.

TEST A

Seeds of crabgrass (Digitaria sp.), barnyardgrass (Echinochloa crusgalli), wild oates (Avena fatua), sicklepod (Cassia obtusifolia), morningglory (Ipomoea sp.), cocklebur (Xanthium sp.), sorghum, corn, soybean, rice, wheat and nutsedge tubers (Cyperus rotundus) were planted in a growth medium and treated pre-emergence with a non-phytotoxic solvent solution of the compounds of Table A. At the same time, cotton having five leaves, bush beans with the third trifoliate leaf expanding, crabgrass and barnyardgrasses with two leaves, wild oats with two leaves, sicklepod with three leaves, morningglory and cocklebur with four leaves, sorghum with four leaves, corn with four leaves, soybean with two leaves, rice with three leaves, wheat with one leaf, and nutsedge with three to five leaves were sprayed with a non-phytotoxic solvent solution of the compounds of Table A. Other containers of the above mentioned weeds and crops were treated pre- or post-emergence with the same non-phytotoxic solvent so as to provide a solvent control. A set of untreated control plants was also included for comparison. Pre-emergence and post-emergence treated plants and controls were maintained in a greenhouse for sixteen days, then all treated plants were compared with their respective controls and rated visually for response to treatment.

The following rating system was used:

0=no effect;

10=maximum effect;

C=chlorosis or necrosis;

D=defoliation;

E=emergence inhibition;

G=growth retardation;

H=formative effects;

U=unusual pigmentation;

I=increased chlorophyl; and

6Y=abscised buds or flowers.

Considering the low rates of application, the data clearly demonstrate the high herbicidal activity of the compounds tested. ##STR66##

It is noted that Compound 6 has demonstrated low activity at a rate of 0.05 kg/ha. It is thought that at higher rates, activity would be improved.

TEST B

Two plastic bulb pans were filled with fertilized and limed Fallsington silt loam soil. One pan was planted with corn, sorghum, Kentucky bluegrass and several grassy weeds. The other pan was planted with cotton, soybeans, purple nutsedge (Cyperus rotundus), and several broadleaf weeds. The following grassy and broadleaf weeds were planted: crabgrass (Digitaria sanguinalis), barnyardgrass (Echinochloa crusgalli), wild oats (Avena fatua), johnsongrass (Sorghum halepense), dallisgrass (Paspalum dilatatum), giant foxtail (Setaria faberii), cheatgrass (Bromus secalinus), mustard (Brassica arvensis), cocklebur (Xanthium pensylvanicum), pigweed (Amaranthus retroflexus), morningglory (Ipomoea hederacea), sicklepod (Cassia obtusifolia), teaweed (Sida spinosa), velvetleaf (Abutilon theophrasti), and jimsonweed (Datura stramonium). A 12.5 cm diameter plastic pot was also filled with prepared soil and planted with rice and wheat. Another 12.5 cm pot was planted with sugar beets. The above four containers were treated pre-emergence with several test compounds within the scope of the invention.

TEST C

Two ten-inch in diameter plastic pans lined with polyethylene liners were filled with prepared Fallsington silt loam soil. One pan was planted with seeds of wheat (Triticum aestivum), barley (Hordeum vulgare), wild oats (Avena fatua), downy brome (Bromus tectorum), cheatgrass (Bromus secalinus), blackgrass (Alopecurus myosuroides), annual bluegrass (Poa annua), green foxtail (Setaria viridis), quackgrass (Agropyron repens), Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) and ripgut brome (Bromus rigidus). The other pan was planted with seeds of Russian thistle (Salsola kali), tansy mustard (Descuraina pinnata), Galium aparine, tumble mustard (Sisymbrium altissium) kochia (Kochia scoparia), shepherd's purse (Capsella bursapastoris), Matricaria inodora, black nightshade (Solanum nigrum), yellow rocket (Barbarea vulgaris), rapeseed and wild buckwheat (Polygonum convolvulus). The above two pans were treated pre-emergence. At the same time two pans in which the above plant species were growing were treated post-emergence. Plant height at the time of treatment ranged from 1-15 cm depending on plant species.

The test compounds were diluted with a nonphytotoxic solvent and sprayed over-the-top of the pans at two rates of application. An untreated control and a solvent alone control were included for comparison. All treatments were maintained in the greenhouse for 20 days at which time the treatments were compared to the controls and the effects visually rated. The recorded data are presented in Table C. The data indicate that the compounds tested have potential utility for the pre- and/or post-emergence weed control of certain weed species in cereal crops such as wheat and barley.

TEST D

Two compounds from within the scope of the invention were dissolved in a non-phytotoxic solvent and applied to rice which had been transplanted three days previously into simulated paddies. The paddies also contained plantings of barnyardgrass, water chestnut and arrowhead, serious weed problems in rice fields. The test was maintained in a greenhouse. Plant response ratings were made five to eight weeks after application utilizing the rating system as described for Test A. The data are summarized in Table D. At least one of the compounds tested has utility for selective weed control in rice.

TEST E

The test chemicals, dissolved in a non-phytotoxic solvent, were applied in an overall spray to the foliage and surrounding soil of selected plant species. One day after treatment, plants were checked for rapid burn injury. Approximately fourteen days after treatment all species were visually compared to untreated controls and rated for response to treatment. The rating system was as described previously for Test A. The data are presented in Table E.

All plant species were seeded in Woodstown sandy loam soil and grown in a greenhouse. The following species were grown in soil contained in plastic pots (25 cm diameter by 13 cm deep): soybeans, cotton, alfalfa, corn, rice, wheat, sorghum, velvetleaf (Abutilon theophrasti), sesbania (Sesbania exaltata), sicklepod (Cassia obtusifolia), morningglory (Ipomoea hederacea), jimsonweed (Datura stramonium), cocklebur (Xanthium pensylvanicum), crabgrass (Digitaria spp.), nutsedge (Cyperus rotundus), barnyardgrass (Echinochola crusgalli), giant foxtail (Setaria faberii), and wild oats (Avena fatua). The following species were grown in soil in a paper cup (12 cm diameter by 13 cm deep); sunflower, sugar beets, and rape. All plants were sprayed approximately 14 days after planting.
